News Roundup 2019!
Are you ready for a quick blog post covering everything I haven't yet had the chance to mention here?
LIGHTNING ROUND BLOG POST HERE WE COME!
1.) Elder Empire - Spring 2020
Progress on these books has been so sporadic over the last four years that I basically had to start over from scratch, but even so I'm almost done! Killers / Kings will be released in Spring 2020, and I'll be more specific than that when I actually get them finished.
2.) 1,000 reviews on Underlord and Uncrowned
Within a day or two of each other, both Underlord and Uncrowned crossed 1,000 reviews on Amazon.
That is not only more reviews than I've ever gotten on any book before, it's also especially mind-bending because the first book in any series almost always has the most reviews. To see books six and seven in a series hit more reviews than the first and have a higher average score is...special.
3.) Cradle Foundation is currently free!
The collection of the first three Cradle books (Cradle: Foundation) is free through December 30th! PICK IT UP GO GO LIGHTNING ROUND AAAAAAHHHHH

First comment!!! This is all awesome!

AMAZING! Soon I will discover how Nathanel Barius intends to take over the world!

Hey Will, grats on all the great news, have you considered packaging the second 3 cradle books in future(probably after he ee release hype dies down), what would you call the second 3 books?
12/27/2019 07:51:56 am
I bought all the EE books and audiobooks and cannot wait to read them all, waiting till closer to release date so they are all fresh.

Hi there Will! I'm a time traveler from the future writing to let you know the ending for OKAK is pretty tight. You wove all those intersecting plot threads together masterfully! Thanks Will.

Can the Sacred Artist crafting/refining magic system be compared to Reading in how it seems someone of higher advancement has more potency in their crafted items to how Intent is somehow making a infused item “level up”
1/21/2020 01:39:40 pm
Intent in item gathers over time with use. The Emperor just invests a 1000x (guestimate) more intent into an item over the same period of time as a regular magister. He's also a lot better at focusing it.

Has there been any plans of publishing a second Cradle omnibus or what its name would be (my own guess:'Gold')?
1/30/2020 01:40:35 pm
Nah it should be called advancement
12/28/2019 04:29:43 pm
Fantastic stuff all around to hear Will!
12/29/2019 10:37:27 pm
Elder Empire has been one of my top 3 hopes for books in 2020, so thank you Will :)

Out of curiosity does Will, or one of his team, know Mandarin? I noticed that the paperback version chapter numbers are all in Chinese which I thought a nice touch, and then there's a cover or two.

Random question not related to anything above. Do you judge post with incorrect grammar and spelling?
12/30/2019 08:29:03 am
Awesome! I just passed on the free ebook link to like 10 of my friends to try your series Will. I may have told them anyone who DIDN'T thoroughly enjoy these books would be subjected to being tied down and forced to watch the new Cats movie for 24 hours straight....

Will Shera and Calder be murdered by hordes of Elders screaming otherworldly words like "Northstrider" and "Lindon"?

Ugh, I've been waiting for more travelers gate for 415 years.

I'm still waiting for my book, I Got Reincarnated Into An Online Game As a Healer.
1/3/2020 11:04:26 am
Wait. We've been successfully distracting you from finishing Elder Empire for four years? How has it been that long?
1/10/2020 06:04:19 am
Will, I hear you go on writing cruises and rent log cabins on business expense. This offends me.

Will, say nothing if the Mad King wears Crocks made from a class 1 fiend.

I've been around for a few years now, but not quite long enough to have seen this post before. It's great! Thanks for sharing!

So, are we to assume that the mailing list short stories are CANON, not the death-fights but the powers? Also, in one of them I seem to recall Indrial's daughter wielding Mithra when she was fighting him even though she was bound to Vasha. Any reason why she was, or was that just for fun?
1/18/2020 09:45:38 am
Also, did Simon's chains stay white after the power of Elysia flowed through him and left? Because even Caela said they looked good and I trust her judgment.
1/18/2020 01:16:23 pm
Also, I still do NOT understand why Simon followed a strange man who talks to dolls and just KILLED TWO people in front of him into a place he CANNOT leave by himself and has the possibility of being STRANGLED by shadows wearing hoodies. Unless it was for candy, then good job Simon, it was definitely worth it to get those M&M's.
Overly Pessimistic Orthos

It's been 23 days since Will's last blog post. That's longer than his usual 14-21. He's probably dead.

I can’t find an obituary, so I remain hopeful.
1/21/2020 01:10:53 pm
Nah, he posted on reddit. Orthos up there is just trying the old "Tell Will we think he's dead so he posts more content trick."

Oops. Just realized that not only did I spell my name wrong, I also didn’t even click the right respond button.
1/23/2020 08:13:25 pm
Talk to us Will! We haven't heard from you all year.
1/29/2020 12:13:34 pm
It actually has been a lot longer then usual between the times will post something. I expect he's trying to get Elder Empire up to the point where he can give us some real news. Maybe he's finished his draft of one of the books and has a release date for something.
